How to Apply

Fill out the Contributor Application Form below.

Regarding the “Message” field, if you have links to prior online writing experience, send us 2 or 3 links but ONLY if it's relevant to TV, movies, or video game reporting. If you were writing in a different field - or have not written news content, we need fresh movie/TV/gaming samples to look over. Do not send us short stories, poetry, food reviews, lifestyle pieces, or other writing samples that are non-movie/TV/gaming. Any samples that do not adhere to these guidelines - or any applications without samples will not be considered. Also, specify whether you are applying to write Gaming news, TV/Movie news, OR list post features - select the ONE (Gaming, TV/Movies, or lists) where you have the most knowledge and interest.

If you are applying to write list posts, you should provide a list-style sample, or write a mini-list for us on a subject you think we would cover. The mini-list should be 3-4 entries plus an introduction, each 150 words.

Do not follow up with us if you do not hear back immediately. If all of our free lance positions are filled, we will keep your application on file for future openings.
